[WATCH] President Biden Is Already Taking Steps to Protect Women After SCOTUS Overturns Roe

As the country was still reeling from the Supreme Court’s decision to remove a person’s Constitutional right to privacy by overturning Roe v Wade, President Joe Biden was already preparing to help those who’ll be most impacted.

The ruling to remove all abortion protections and allow the states to decide negates the sworn testimony of Donald Trump’s three seated Justices–Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett–who had all testified they believed Roe was “settled law” during their nomination hearings.

President Biden tweeted on Friday afternoon to share the actions his administration is taking to protect women who will “face the grave consequences of today’s Supreme Court decision. This decision expressly took away a Constitutional right from the American people that it had recognized for nearly 50 years – a woman’s right to choose, free from government interference.” The President made it clear that the only way to secure a woman’s right to choose is for Congress to restore the protections of Roe as federal law.

In a press statement, the President outlined the two actions.

Protecting the Right to Seek Medical Care: A person has the right to travel between states for whatever reason they want – it is no one else’s business – especially the government’s. If a woman lives in a state that restricts abortion, the Supreme Court’s decision does not prevent her from traveling from her home to a state that allows it. If any state or local official tries to interfere with women exercising this basic right, the Biden Administration will fight that deeply un-American attack.

Protecting Access to Medication: The President directed the Secretary of Health and Human Services to protect women’s access to critical medications for reproductive health care that are approved by the Food and Drug Administration—including essential preventive health care like contraception and medication abortion.
